Simply Calligraphy - Judy Detrick

This step by step guide shows the reader the techniques used to create beautiful letters. Detrick's easy style and images showing which direction to draw in and therefore forming each letter is not complicated.

Whether a complete beginner or someone who dabbled in calligraphy and stopped and need a reminder, this is a good companion. Each chapter on pens, small letters, numbers etc., are well thought out and there is logic behind the 'flow'.

Perhaps a lost art, this book will appeal to those who are creative but haven't felt brave enough to write their own labels or invitations. With careful reading and practice anyone will be able to create the delightful italics and become a 'pro' in no time at all.

I haven't finished practicing yet! I found it very easy to follow instructions. The ways on how to use this particular art - wedding invitations, place names etc. - was especially helpful. Easy to follow and gave me confidence to write in this style.

A recommended read for crafters as well as those interested in the art of writing.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the Blogging for Books program. The opinions expressed are my own and I am not required to give a positive critique.
